Update 12/29/2012: As I sip a bottle of Bison Gingerbread Stout tonight I'm remarking upon how delightful this beer is, and how much it really resembles a fresh baked gingerbread cookie. It's the extra dose of ginger that does the trick here, overpowering the nutmeg and cinnamon to make all the difference. I still prefer Twain's Gingerbread Brown Ale as the ultimate gingerbread in a glass, but this one is quite nice as well.
A bit smaller a beer than it was the first time I tried it, at 6% alcohol by volume today as opposed to 6.8% in the past. At $8.98 a four pack, though, the beer is priced about the same as it was then.
And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
